Listen To A Clip Of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Beautifully Haunting Singing Voice From Neverwhere


This audio clip autostarts so we’re putting it after the jump. But really, would anyone mind a little surprise Benedict Cumberbatch?

Cumberbatch plays Islington in the audio adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s TV series/novel Neverwhere and acts alongside James McAvoy, Natalie Dormer, Anthony Head and Christopher Lee (check out a cast photo!). It will have its premiere on BBC’s Radio 4 this Saturday and continue on Radio 4 Extra Monday-Friday.

If only listen isn’t enough, and I’m sure it won’t be, take a tip from the Radio Times: “For an extra-eerie effect, open this page in two (or more) windows and start the clip playing for a second time, say 15/20 seconds after the first one has started (the more windows you open, the weirder it gets…)”

    Does he take requests? If he could just do The Hobbit’s Misty Mountains song from here on out, that would great…

    He should sing more often, the little bits and pieces he has sung in various productions are all wonderful.
